The Sherwood Park 55 Plus Club has a long and distinguished record of service in the community.  It was established in 1970 as the Sherwood Oaks Senior Citizens' Association.  In its early years, the club met in the basement of the Log Cabin Community Centre.  Later, with the help of the Kinsmen Club, an Activity Centre was built adjoining the Log Cabin at 50A Spruce Ave. in Sherwood Park.  An expansion of the building occurred in January 2008 to meet the increased needs of the membership.


In 1985, Alice Modin, a member of the Sherwood Oaks Senior Citizens' Association, persuaded the Councillors of Strathcona County to declare a “Senior's Day”.  The first annual Strawberry Tea, sponsored by the Association, was held at the Log Cabin  to celebrate this declaration.  In 1986, the Alberta Government was persuaded to make this  observation province wide for one week and to this date, Senior's Week in Alberta  is held the first full week in June each year.  On June 6, 2010, Alice Modin was honored at the Silver Anniversary Strawberry Tea sponsored by the Sherwood Park 55 Plus Club.



The club is a non-denominational, not-for-profit association open to everyone 55 years of age and older. It is run on a volunteer basis by it's members.
